Thunderclap: Women in Clinical Trials

Office of Women's Health, FDA

June 2016

Message from the Director

In January, OWH launched our new Diverse Women in Clinical Trials Initiative with a social media rally and Women in Clinical Trials Thunderclap. With your support, we reached millions of people across the country, spreading awareness about the importance of diverse women participating in clinical trials. As we continue to promote clinical trial diversity, I encourage you to support FDA Office of Minority Health’s #ClinicaTrialsChampion Thunderclapand show your support for increased diversity in clinical trials. 
OWH continues to connect women to FDA safety and health information. In this eUpdate, we have included links to educational resources on topics such as heart health, HIV and clinical trials. Please share this update with your networks and encourage women to look to FDA for women’s health information. 
Marsha Henderson, Assistant Commissioner for Women’s Health

Women in Clinical Trials: Make a Difference

Women can make a difference in the safety and effectiveness of future medical products by participating in clinical trials. Women of all ages, racial and ethnic groups, and women with disabilities or chronic health conditions should think about being in a clinical trial.
Spread the word about the importance of clinical trial participation with these FDA resources.

Aspirin-Containing Antacid Medicines Can Cause Bleeding

The next time you reach for an over-the-counter (OTC) product to treat your upset stomach or heartburn, consider whether you should use one of the many antacids that don’t have aspirin. Aspirin-containing medicines to treat heartburn, sour stomach, acid indigestion, or upset stomach can cause stomach or intestinal bleeding, especially in some people.
